Duplicate First Names

We ran into an (potential-)issue last night with checking children in. If two children have the same name (not overly common in the same family, but if you are allowed to check-in a child with the same name as one of your kids, more common) then only the first name is still listed and it would be confusing if you only had one kid with you.  You would not know which one to check.

Our initial thought was just add on the last name initial if duplicate names are found, but is there a better solution to this?

Interesting situation.  If not "Firstname L" then perhaps Firstname with Lastname underneath in smaller font -- like this mockup:
